After yesterday's (NASDAQ:PLCM) deal for a Cloud - Based Video Content company Accordent, who is next? This is just a guess but CEO of (NASDAQ:CLRO) did say he is open to offers but not at current stock price. So I would keep a watch of (CLRO) sales which have been on fire in the last 3 straight qtrs with revenues surging over 30% each qtr.

That is the kind of growth buyers want to see before they pull the trigger.

(PLCM) yesterday bought Accordent which had revenues of $9M at the end of 2010. It sold for $50M or  a valuation metric of 5.55x Sales
.

This shows how high the premiums Cloud -Based stocks demand today because of the massive growth in the Cloud Sector expected this decade.
